Arrest of legal expert tantamount to put obstacles from opting legal course, says Jama’at
Srinagar: Jama’at-e-Islami Jammu and Kashmir on Wednesday termed the arrest of its legal expert Mir Assad-ullah ‘a well planned ploy to retreat Jama’at from approaching court to contest the baseless allegations leveled by government of India.’
Jama’at according to statement said Mir Assad-ullah was asked to present himself before police where he was detained.
“Since then Mir is languishing in police custody which is an ample and spacious evidence that government is not willing to allow Jama’at to approach court and contest the concocted allegations leveled by government of India while imposing ban,” JeI said.
‘Since Jama’at is banned, police across the state have unleashed arrest spree which clearly depicts how peaceful voice is being strangulated by repressive and forcible measures? So far government forces have rounded up 300 members and associates among few were slapped by the most draconian law Public Safety Act (PSA)’, reads the statement.
Jama’at has said that they will move court with strong and valid argument against the ban imposed on them.
